The Word "Secular" Matters, Even If It's Just A Token

The reality for many Muslims in "secular" India belies the word. However, the word is not entirely meaningless. That the Constitution acknowledges them is a source of hope for the minorities. At least on paper, they are equal citizens of the country and are thus eligible for all the rights and protections that the Constitution guarantees. Despite the endless delays of the judicial system and often biased police forces the minorities still feel they can seek recourse in the legal system.
